About stock adjustment history

With Square for Retail Plus Inventory Plus features, you can gain insights into the flow of your inventory by viewing historical adjustments.

Before you begin

There are three adjustment types:

  • Deduction: damaged, lost and sold items.

  • Deduction or Addition: re-counted items.

  • Addition:

    • Received: If you receive a purchase order, or manually mark an item as received. For an item to appear in the Cost of Goods Sold report, items must be marked as Received.

    • Restocked: Adjustment will reflect as restocked when you process a return.

    • Transferred: Record of transferring stock from one location to another.
